The audiobook was a great listen. This tale is funny, heartwarming, literary. It tells the tale of an orphan who runs into Samir, a merchant who is the "Seller of dreams". Samir calls the book Monkey and it sticks. The two after many trials and tribulation form a genuine bond. Samir is a storyteller, an opportunist.

Gr 4 Up—Monkey escapes being murdered by monks only to find himself indebted to Samir, the Seller of Dreams,
and traveling down the 11th-century Silk Road trying to find freedom. This masterly tale is packed with legends, high
jinks, and humor alongside deep ponderings on life and love.
